Hi Kaylee_S,

German speakers are presumably blessed by a wealth of material by Nyanatiloka Mahathera (1878-1957), the first Western Theravada Bhikkhu, translated directly from Pali to German. His student Nyanaponika Thera (1901-1994) was also from Germany.

Of course, I can only read his work in English, but presumably some German versions have by now found their way onto the Internet.

Thank you, I hadn't heard of them before, probably because I prefer to read the English literature.

Here is Nyanatiloka Mahathera's "Buddhist Dictionary", available as a PDF:


And a website where one can download lots of different dhamma books in German:

Dhamma Greetings,

the teachings of the Venerable Vimalaramsi in Spanish:


Thank you & be well, always :)
"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

My site "Dhamma-biblioteket" ("The Dhamma Library") with my translations from the Pali texts (and some Sanskrit texts) into Norwegian, is moving to a new web site:

http://dhamma.priv.no/index.htm

The old site will remain open for a while, before it is closed.
